Roxul Inc. projects that smoke and blue haze lingering over the city will be gone within a few months, thanks to new air pollution control technology being installed at its Grand Forks factory. The tall smoke stack that currently towers over the insulation manufacturer at the corner of Industrial Park Way and 65th Avenue does meet the environmental permit requirements, said factory manager Elmar Herrmann, but it still pumps out exhaust that doesn’t have a pleasant odour and is visually unattractive. “We have had a smoke problem for a long time,” said Roxul’s process and quality control manager, Andy Black. The new emission abatement system is a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO), which basically acts like a high efficient furnace to break down the odorous and visible gases. After the gases go through the combustion chamber and specialized filters, the gas that does come out of the small stack will contain water vapour and a small amount of particulate, said Black. The company, which produces insulation through the process of melting rocks and injecting the molten material with air, is expecting the project to cost $6 million. “I live here as well and I don’t like seeing that smoke in the air,” said Black. Two of the emissions that can’t be seen coming from the factory include phenol and formaldehyde. Those emissions are very low and they will be virtually eliminated by the RTO, said Black. “The RTO will have a separate stack, which will stand approximately 15 metres tall,” said the process and quality control manager. “The tall stack will remain, but only one emission source will flow through it and all the rest of them will be treated by the RTO.” “The emissions are never going to be zero,” said Herrmann, “but it will be much better than what they are now with this new technology.” Black said because Grand Forks sits in a valley, the emissions get trapped here. “Sometimes the air just sits here. We can have almost perfect conditions in the factory with barely anything going out the stack, but if the air doesn’t move, the smoke just sits in the valley,” he said. Roxul has been trying to lower its emissions for a number of years and it has tried other alternatives in the past, which did not have satisfactory results. “We have had a project ongoing for the past couple of years to have a look at what the prob-

lem is and to see what technology would work best,” said Black. “We determined the RTO solution would be the best technology to control Roxul’s emissions.” Chris Moslin, a former councillor and chair of the defunct air quality committee, lauded Roxul’s effort. “With the construction of the existing facility and the tall stack, which has an after burner, they were well within their permit. There was no legal necessity for Roxul to make these further improvements; they took it upon themselves to create this cutting edge technology to further reduce their emissions – the blue haze and the smell,” said Moslin. “If the new technology would enable Roxul to ramp up their production that would be an immediate economic benefit to the community, not just a health benefit.”

Moslin went on to say that there is an antiindustry sentiment in Grand Forks and Roxul often bears that brunt of it. “They have done a lot for this town,” he said. Coun. Cher Wyers, who co-chairs the city’s environment committee, said that she found out about the announcement at a meeting last week. “It’s a commitment that they have had and recognized for some time since their last upgrade and they weren’t happy with the emission results from their previous upgrade so they were working forward to address the additions that were out there,” Wyers said. “It’s a very positive step, they are a good corporate citizen in our community and we welcome the upgrades that are coming and look forward to seeing the results.” The RTO is expected to be running by the end of July.

Grant In Aid Meeting Invitation for the Public to Attend

1908 Breaking all previous records during the past week, Granby Mining Company shipped from the mines 24,440 tons of ore and 22,768 tons were treated at the smelter, an average of 3,253 tons per day. 1913 At their regular meeting, the Farmers’ Institute passed a motion that they would solicit the aid of the city council and board of trade in establishing a canning factory, which the institute felt was urgently needed here. 1918 A Grand Forks old-timer, Donald McDonald, age 93, left for Kamloops to reside in a home for the aged. He came here in 1890 and was original owner of the 320 acres that subsequently became the Columbia townsite. 1923 The Fruit Products Company closed their apple butter and cider plant temporarily pending market disposal of their accumulated products. 1928 Former Grand Forks resident Mr. and Mrs. Charles O. Lindeburg, with son-inlaw and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Inkeep, of Oregon, arrived here with two carloads of stock to start a ranching operation. 1933 Within the month, city council was to move to its new quarters in the post office building, the first instance in Canada where a federal building would also house civic offices. 1938 Excavation began for the new brick building addition to F. Downey’s to-

bacco shop, the addition to be used as a billiard hall. 1943 Under the supervision of the local Ration Board, some 6,200 new ration books were issued throughout the Boundary area, of which 2,996 were distributed to Grand Forks. 1948 At a meeting attended by representatives of local organizations, Alan Clapp was elected president and Molly Plant, secretary-treasurer, of the newly formed Grand Forks Film Council. 1953 Speaking in the Legislature, Attorney General Robert Bonner stated Doukhobor marriages would soon be recognized by law, as it was socially undesirable to continue to outlaw such marriages. 1955 Dr. William D. Smith was accorded the rare distinction of being elected to honourary life membership in the B.C. Dental Association in recognition of the high standard of dentistry he set during his years of practice here from 1923 to 1952. 1963 Over 200 members of the Grand Forks and District Credit Union attended the 14th annual general meeting at the school auditorium and heard guest speaker R.J. Robinson, manager of the B.C. Central Credit Union. 1968 The Department of Municipal Affairs has asked city council to revert to a town status. 1973 The National Second Century Fund

Teens accused of causing mischief on Highway 3 SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

There was a group of teenagers accused of throwing rocks and snowballs at passing vehicles on Highway 3 at Christina Lake on March 17. At 11:25 p.m., a commercial truck driver told Grand Forks RCMP that three youth had thrown rocks at his truck, causing damage to his window. “Multiple complaints (followed) of young people throwing rocks and snowballs and putting debris out on the highway,” said Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “It’s a really dangerous practice which could have resulted in a possibility of a fatal accident.” The police spoke with two of the suspected teens, but they denied involvement. “Unfortunately no witnesses can put them at the scene doing it, but they were in the area and it’s one of those parts of the investigation, they may or may not have been involved,” said Harrison. Grand Forks RCMP asks people to contact them immediately if they see someone taking part in this kind of activity. Seniors’ Centre disturbance There was a disturbance outside

of the seniors’ centre on March 19, after a town hall meeting relating to the RDKB’s animal control bylaw. Two parties were involved, according the Grand Forks RCMP, and both parties have complained about the other. “We are investigating the entire matter; at this point we have not come to any conclusion about recommending charges,” said Harrison. One of the parties has made complaints of harassment and the other party has made complaints of uttered threats and assault, added Harrison. Burning paper bag put on front porch A Grand Forks resident received the blunt end of an ongoing prank on March 18. “An individual put a paper bag on someone’s front porch and lit it on fire,” said Harrison. “It seems to be part of a continuing problem, this individual has had other incidents occur to him in the past.” There are currently no suspects or witnesses. iPad stolen from unlocked home On March 23, someone entered an unlocked back door of a home on 25th Street and stole an iPad. The incident was reported at 3:52 p.m. The value of the iPad is $500 and there are no suspects or witnesses.

Animal control bylaw discussed at town hall

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

The Seniors’ Centre in Grand Forks’ City Park was packed full of animal owners and residents concerned with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary’s (RDKB) proposed animal control bylaw on Tuesday. The meeting was an opportunity for residents to voice concerns and make recommendations for change. Boundary Animal Control Officers Richard Smith and John Jansezian tried to clarify some of the issues. Jansezian asked everyone if they were concerned with the section of the bylaw that says dogs would be put down after five days, if they weren’t not picked up from shelter. “Yes,” yelled the crowd. “Well, we are here to tell you ... I am not here to kill your dog,” said Jansezian. A member of the crowd then wanted to know why the clause was put in the bylaw in the first place. “We didn’t put it in there, it’s been in there for years, you have just chosen to read it now,” Jansezian said. He went on to explain that 100 per cent of the dogs they have caught have gone back to 100 per cent of the owners. Jansezian also tried to address the threedog limit, as one concerned individual said it wouldn’t allow her to have a litter of dogs. “We actually have a clause in there that says until it’s four to six months old it doesn’t reach the licensing stage, so yes you could have a litter of 12 chihuahuas; by the time it gets to four to six months, you need to find a home for those dogs,” he said. Karen McKay, a member of the Kootenay

Boundary Pet Dog Association, reminded everyone in attendance that they are looking for input and suggestions and that’s the reason why the meeting was held. Some of the additional voiced concerns included: the repercussions owners might face because of barking dogs, the difficulties of keeping dogs on a leash, boarding kennels, breeding, keeping dogs in enclosures, the dangers of deeming a dog vicious, vaccinations and responsible owners. Under the current bylaw if a dog is chasing deer, it’s considered vicious, said Jansezian. “If your dog is chasing deer on your property and it’s fenced in we are not going to cross that fence and tell you your dog is vicious, the rule is if the dog is off your property and chasing deer, than we consider it vicious,” he said. Brian Taylor, mayor of Grand Forks, was present and he said that RDKB’s Area D and C, Greenwood and the City of Grand Forks would be meeting to come up with another draft of the animal control bylaw. “We are hopefully going to come up with something that is a little better put together that we can bring back to the public for input,” said Taylor. “What you have in place right now, and I agree it has been there for 15 to 20 years, nobody has ever read it and we never followed those rules because we always found ways of being more human and sensitive to what’s going on, but the time has come when we need better rules,” said Taylor. The RDKB drafted a comment sheet with questions for people to mark down their comments, which will be taken back to the district for follow-up, said McKay. Boundary Animal Control can be contacted by phone at 250-444-0371 or by email at brenrich@hotmail.com.

z CLARIFICATION To provide clarification regarding a March 13 story entitled “City set to re-examine grant-in-aid policy,” the $5,000 non-taxable amount granted as part of Grand Forks city councillor stipend is not intended as money that can be given to the community. According to a section of the Federal Income Tax Act provided by the city, “This is considered an allowance for expenses incidental to the discharge of the person’s duties as an elected officer.”

z Our View

Letting dogs be dogs

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) Animal Control Bylaw No. 1511 has been under scrutiny ever since it was announced at an Area D town hall meeting in Grand Forks a few weeks back. The bylaw, which the RDKB says replaces bylaws 1081, 1151 and 1142, has a number of controversial language, some of which has been there for years and was discussed at another, more recent town hall meeting, which took place on March 19. The Gazette spoke about the dangers of part of the bylaw which adds breeds of pit bulls to the definition of a dangerous dog but there is another part of the vicious dog definition that needs to be re-worded before passage. Another part of the “vicious dog” definition states that included in the definition is “any dog that has attacked, bitten, attempted to attack or bite, or chase any person or animal or wildlife; …” There is no debate about dogs that have attacked or bitten or attempted to attack or bite but doesn’t the part about chasing any wildlife or animals seem a bit extreme? It’s safe to assume that a dog will get riled up if deer, squirrels or even other dogs come within the vicinity, and if such wildlife comes near their owners property, wouldn’t it be instinct for the dog to chase it? Boundary Animal Control stated at the most recent town hall that if a dog chased a deer within an owner’s fenced property, it wouldn’t “cross that fence and tell you your dog is vicious” but if it’s off the property than it would consider it vicious. So a fence makes the difference between whether a dog is vicious? Dogs will chase things whether a car, a ball or yes, wildlife, and that shouldn’t be a factor in determining how vicious it is. Many have expressed concern about various sections of the bylaw as it stands and in fact, residents have expressed those concerns in letters to the editor. The RDKB is said to be coming up with another draft and hopefully it drastically re-writes the bylaw and takes into account that dogs will be dogs.

As I get older, I truly begin to see how much I took my youth for granted and no more was that noticeable than this past week. I was at the local peewee hockey team’s first game at the Tier 4 hockey championships on March 17 and the game went on until about 10:30 p.m. Of course the young players were tired but their next game was 5 p.m. the next day and they didn’t have to worry about school because the local schools were off for spring break (and will be so until next week). While I have holiday time, it’s nowhere close to the amount of time children get off. I will take a week off at Christmas and also in the summer but it is only

While they seemed like real dilemmas back then, they weren’t. As I get older, I realize the cheaper sneakers do pretty much the same job as the exorbitantly expensive ones. Video games are still a source of enjoyment but groceries and staples of life are more important. While I like where I am, I can’t help but think back to simpler time, when school was all I really had to worry about and along with it the summer holidays and spring break.

LETTERS z GFI BASEBALL

Rumours of demise are not true Editor: Re: City re-examines Donaldson Park usage policy (story, March 6 issue) Grand Forks International baseball tournament (GFI) board of directors would like to clear up misconceptions that may have occurred regarding an article in the Gazette. A quote was made that, “The baseball tournament has been highly successful historically in the past but has been struggling in the last few years.” We would like to assure our sponsors, volunteers, and the community that the GFI society and tournament are strong, fiscally viable and very successful. We pride ourselves on delivering top-notch baseball and bringing recognition and tourism to our community. The GFI provides the highest prize payout purse in all of North America and is a very well-respected tournament in the baseball world. Improvements to the baseball diamond are currently underway. The GFI field maintenance team is consulting and assisting city crews with improvements. As stated in the Gazette “the city of Grand Forks is looking into revising the policy for the use of James Donaldson Park.” The GFI society has supported sharing the facility with

other community events and we will continue to do so. Our society has policies in place as does the city and our board will soon be involved in discussions with the city so that we can continue to share successful community events at James Donaldson Park. The GFI is not hosted every year and the 2013 tournament has been cancelled. Generally when a year is taken off it is due to the scheduling problems of teams that have been invited, as they are playing in the World Baseball Challenge or the Canadian National Baseball Championships. Teams have been invited to these events due to their past participation at the GFI and as you all know, major league players have been scouted at the tournament. The board would like to thank everyone involved with the tournament and to let you know it is eagerly working towards providing the community with the best of “Real Men, Real Grass, Real Baseball” and many successful GFI tournaments in the years to come.

‘Gateway’ to the future at Christina Lake z In the Spotlight

Those of you who read my article about why I backed away from the Boundary Economic Development Committee may wonder what I am doing instead. In early 2012, I called together GRACE representatives of the major comMcGREGOR munity organizations at Christina Lake and suggested that the time had come to work more closely together. We are facing some real challenges and I felt that by standing together, we could make some important changes. There was a sense of common concern and willingness expressed to try something new. With this agreement, we found funding to hire a community coordinator, Sandy Mark, who was contracted to work with us. Mark comes with a strong background in community development and community economic development. She had some interesting ideas to offer. In her first few weeks she wrote a situational analysis report that reviewed the state of the community. From this study, she recommended a four-point program: first, to improve communications between groups, businesses and the wider East Boundary community; secondly, to strengthen existing community organizations, co-ordinate activities and events and build partnerships; thirdly, to support existing businesses and fourthly, to create a community economic development strategy. Her assessment was that the basic issues in the community came down to the state of the local economy that was weakened as a result of recent general economic conditions as well as the generational shift clearly operating here. Her report also pointed to the many assets in the community showing that there is potential for real and sustainable growth. Stronger businesses would attract more workers and families ensuring the health of our wonderful school (Christina Lake Elementary School) and our exemplary fire department. More strength in our community organizations would ensure that social issues could be attended to, once again making our community stronger and better serving the needs of children, families and seniors. As a result of the work Mark supported and facilitated over the past six months, the participants in the co-ordination project could see that working together was bringing results. They and I were ready to take the next step. Accordingly, we have incorporated a new organization that is made up of members of the major community and business groups at Christina Lake. Welcome to Christina Gateway Community Development Association! This association will continue to work on the four-point plan. In particular, “Gateway” will be moving forward to establish the basis for a strong community economic development strategy. The organizations at the table and their representatives include the Christina Lake Chamber of Commerce, represented by Lisa Smith and Nola Delaye; the Christina Lake Community Association, represented by Ken Stewart and Brenda Auge; the Christina Lake Firefighters Association, represented by Chad Freeman and Ken Gresley-Jones (fire chief); the Christina Lake Art and Artisans Society, represented by Bob Dupee; the Christina Lake Stewardship Society, represented by Brenda Lacroix and Richard White and the Christina Lake Recreation Commission represented by Dianne Wales and Paul Beatty. This strategy will include building resources and programs to support business retention, business growth and business attraction. Community organizations are looking at enterprising opportunities and partnerships between businesses and community organizations are being built to cross promote. We are learning all about “inbound marketing” (i.e. Internet based marketing) and gearing up to make sure what we offer to visitors and customers is well positioned in the social media marketplace. Our most exciting endeavour will be to establish a community venture capital pool. The people in Christina Lake have made it clear that “green businesses” and “lifestyle workers” would be very welcome here. We see that we can attract more of these businesses if we can offer an equity partnership to them. We are modelling these ideas on a variety of examples from across Canada, the U.S. and Europe that have demonstrated the potential for small communities to bootstrap themselves into a stronger economic position. And what about our place in the Boundary? I realize from the work done in the Rural BC Project that I have reported to you recently, that economic development in rural areas should be done on a regional basis. I felt strongly that Christina Lake needed to turn inward to build up our own strength. This would make us a stronger partner for regional endeavours. As our efforts come to fruition, we will gladly share and partner because we know that ultimately, the Christina Lake community needs to be part of a stronger Boundary economy. I will let you know how we are doing as we move forward. – Grace McGregor is Area C director for the RDKB

FREE INFO SESSION

SD51 to shuffle staff

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

School District 51’s superintendent of schools (Michael Strukoff) and current director of instruction (Maxine Ruzicka) are both retiring, spurring a reshuffle of administration. Darryl Turner, who’s currently the principal of Greenwood and Midway Elementary schools and his wife Jennifer Turner, who is the principal of the Walker Development Centre, in charge of Big White Community School and a district viceprincipal, will also be moving to School District 6. In order to make up for the four administrators that are leaving, SD51 has made a redistribution of staff, said Strukoff. “We haven’t replaced very many of the bodies and we are re-adjusting responsibilities,” he said. “Overall in the end, the district is going to have fewer administrators and teachers.” Kevin Argue was announced as the new superintendent of schools and Doug Lacey the new director of learning late last year. Bob Chapman will be the new principal of Dr. D.A. Perley Elementary School in Grand Forks. Shawn Lockhart will spend half of his time as the principal of Christina Lake Elementary School – he will spend a quarter of his time as the principal of Big White and the rest of his time will be spend as Info Tech Education support. Lacey will be the principal of the Fred Walker Development Centre. Marci Butler will be the full-time principal

of Hutton Elementary School. Scott Stewart will stay on as the full time principal of Grand Forks Secondary School but SD51 will be hiring a parttime vice-principal. Brian Foy, currently principal of West Boundary Elementary and Beaverdell, will be in charge of an additional two elementary schools, taking over Greenwood and Midway as well. The district will hire a part-time vice-principal to help out Foy at Greenwood. A part-time vice-principal of student services will also be hired for the district. Previously at most of the schools, the administrators were also teachers, said Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association. “What they have done is they have said all the administrators are going to be fulltime administrators and then I assume that will make more room for teachers to be in the classroom.” Strukoff did tell the Gazette that the shuffle of administrators will open up a few more teaching positions. He said he has some concerns about some of the administrators being spread thin over too many schools. “I hope extra work isn’t downloaded onto teachers because an administrator isn’t in the building.” Since 2000, enrolment in SD51 has dropped by 37 per cent and the staff will drop by four per cent this year, said Strukoff. The administration changes will be effective as of July 1.

City approves courthouse lease

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The City of Grand Forks has approved a new lease agreement with the Ministry of Justice for the court in Grand Forks. With the lease agreement for the court building on Central Avenue set to expire at the end of the month, city council approved a new agreement at its March 18 regular meeting. According to information from the city, the new agreement will run from April 1 to March 31, 2017 and the Consumer Pricing Indexing (CPI) of the rent charged for the circuit court facility will see the annual rent increase by 5.079 per cent from $39,025 to $41,253.01. Coun. Patrick O’Doherty proposed, Coun. Gary Smith seconded and the deal was approved. The city also approved a number of early budget items at the meeting. Diesel powered chipper Council also approved the purchase of a large diesel wood

chipper citing constant tree trimming, tree removal, dead fall and wind events amongst other things. The city estimated that it would cost $15,000 in contracted services to process the current accumulation of “large caliper branches” and the chipper expected to cost $33,000. “With the expected cost of $33,000 almost half of the purchase cost can be recouped with saved contractor fees,” the city said, adding that it also purchases products produced from wood chippers (mulch, wood chips) for planting and soil needs and further savings would be realized. Downtown beautification and new vehicle The city also approved $253,700 to be spent for downtown beautification (see page 20). O’Doherty proposed the motion, Smith seconded and the motion passed with no one present dissenting. Council also approved $27,000 (from equipment reserves) to be spent for a utility

vehicle (UTV) which the city said would enable staff to conduct duties related to accessing airport beacon sites, maintain parks, campgrounds and trails, watering of hanging baskets and even winter-related road duties (plowing, sanding etc.). Smith proposed the motion, Wyers seconded and the motion passed with all present voting in favour. Furniture Council approved $12,500 (from reserves) to be spent on new office furniture, as new staff has necessitated for the creation of two new offices at city hall. O’Doherty approved, Smith seconded and the motion passed with no dissent amongst councillors. In addition, first, second and third reading was given to Bylaw 1948, the financial plan for 2013 to 2017 and final reading was given to Bylaw 1949 the Roxul Road Closure Bylaw. Councillors Michael Wirischagin and Neil Krog were absent. The next meeting, including the committee of the whole, is on April 2.

New retirement community becomes popular social hub by Kathleen Thomas A mere three short months since the official opening of Silver Kettle Village, Grand Forks’ newest retirement community, and the place is already a hub of social activity. Residents barely had time to unpack treasured possessions before they were able to meet and mingle with other like-minded, independent seniors. The activities schedule is designed to give everyone the chance to socialize at their own speed. From a basic game of cribbage to full day outings, residents find they can choose activities that best meet their needs. The biggest event for February, a Valentine’s Day Dance, had Silver Kettle Village dwellers and dance enthusiasts from town cutting a rug to local band Buck Naked and the Saddle Tramps. The band, as well known for their music as for the fact that Grand Forks mayor Brian Taylor is a founding member, dished out their popular brand of bluesy country rock. The regular dances held at Silver Kettle Village are a fun way to spend an evening with your spouse or to meet new friends and dance partners. Plentiful refreshments wait on the sidelines. “With all the chores I used to do at home, I didn’t have time to think about social activities,” said Kay Hummel. “But since I moved here I don’t have to worry about a thing. All the housekeeping, transportation, security and meals are provided so I can spend more time with my friends. Like enjoying the Valentine’s Dance.” Programming at Silver Kettle Village is designed to meet the needs of all types, from folks who prefer more alone time to regular social butterflies. “We want residents here to feel like they are in a village, with all the opportunities and benefits a small community can provide. This can be anything from a friendly smile in the morning to a walk with

a friend or a full-on dance party,” said Community Manager, Michele Shillaker. Healthy social activities are a key element of programming at the Village. Residents can participate as much as they wish in classes, outings and walks down the treed streets of the city. Because the seniors at Silver Kettle Village are invested in living their best lives, they can mingle in the common areas or have favorite guests to visit in their private suites. Grandkids are always keen to be invited to a sleepover with their grandparents. But social options aren’t the only ones packed into the monthly calendar. There are artistic, fitness and spiritual choices as well. Highlights of the past month included a Super Bowl party for sports fans, a guest appearance by can-can dancers and Chinese New Year’s celebrations. The calendar for March is also packed with events. Residents are looking forward to a bus trip that includes an art gallery visit and lunch at Omega, musical performances, a special Easter dinner buffet, and a ‘50s themed lunch at the Village with favorite foods of that era, By the time local officials cut the ribbon on the newly constructed community in December 2012, most of the 48 independent living units at Silver Kettle Village were already spoken for. A near-full house now means there are plenty of options for forming new friendships and finding new hobbies. The balance of independence, privacy, staff hospitality and security is the priority for this retirement community. Hospitality services included in the affordable monthly rent and include weekly housekeeping, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs. For more information you can call Silver Kettle Village at (250) 442-0667 or visit goldenlife.ca.

NEWS z CHRISTINA LAKE

Society wants mussels kept out of lake

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

The Christina Lake Stewardship Society wants to keep mussels out of the lake. Barb Stewart, a director of the society, spoke about the dangers of Zebra and Quagga mussels at its annual general meeting (AGM), held at the community hall at Christina Lake last Thursday evening (March 21). The mussels are fingernail-sized, freshwater mollusks that can easily attach themselves to objects and other organisms. They can clog pipes, disrupt ecosystems with large monocultures, are difficult to remove and non-native to British Columbia, states the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia (ISC). Stewart, who also works with Boundary Weed Management Committee, said the biggest concern is mussel “hitchhikers,” who attach themselves to boats. Those boats could Barb Stewart be destined for Christina Lake, she said. “If mussels make it into our lakes there will be huge impacts. We need to work on preventing them from getting into our waters.” Mussels have been found in the Great Lakes in Ontario and Quebec, and in at least 24 American states as far west as California and Colorado, according to the ISC. Last year five boats destined for B.C. were found with mussels on them. “There is a big concern here because of our dam system, they can clog up all those little

pipes they use for cooling the dams and it would be a huge amount of work to clean those out,” said Stewart. “The mussels would impact the actual systems within the lake … most of your deep water fish, like your trout and kokanee, will disappear.” The Christina Lake Stewardship Society would like everyone to be aware that mussels are a threat. It’s encouraging every visiting boat to be thoroughly washed before it’s launched in the lake. The Province of B.C. has added the mussels to the Controlled Alien Species Regulation as of December, which means people can be fined if they find Zebra and Quagga mussels attached to their boat or in their possession. Milfoil control program continues The milfoil control program will be commencing its 27th year in operation at the beginning of May. Andy Gilmore, the supervisor of the program, spoke at the AGM at Christina Lake to raise awareness of the growing program, which is completely funded by local residents. Milfoil – properly known as Eurasian Watermilfoil – is a “massive plant” that’s spread throughout the lake infecting the foreshore of both private property owners and the Crown land of Gladstone Provincial Park, according to the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.  The supervisor and his crew of six divers were able to work their way around the whole lake last year, which is a first, thanks to increased funding, said Gilmore. “This year we hope to have eight full-time divers,” he said. Each diver will spend 21 hours per week under water, removing the plants by hand, for a six-month season. The funding for this year’s milfoil control program is $316,000, according to Gilmore, which is larger than it has ever been before.

part of the famous Edmonton Oil Kings in the mid-60s, the same team that won the Memorial Cup twice along with famous players like Pat Quinn (’63), Glen Sather

(’63) and Jim Harrison (’66)? He played for the Johnstown Jets where all the donnybrook happened – thus, the movie Slap Shot was born. In 1977, Peacosh signed with the WHA (World Hockey Association) Edmonton Oilers but he was traded soon after to Indianapolis Racers for Bryan Campbell. Did you know that in 1908 the Boundary Hockey League (BHL) was the first league formed in B.C.? Did you know that the Phoenix (B.C.) Hockey Club challenged for the Stanley Cup in 1911, when the team won the McBride Cup, plus the B.C. and International championship. The reply came too late!

Did you know that the famous brothers Lester and Frank Patrick started a league on the west coast that was called the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) in 1911 and the BHL teams like Greenwood, Grand Forks, and Phoenix were the unofficial farm teams of the PCHA? In 1942, many Nikkei families were sent to ghost towns in the Boundary-Kootenay district. Young men found a new passion for hockey as they only played basketball and baseball on the west coast. Sacred Heart School and Greenwood High School formed three teams called the Hep Cats, Bruins and Tigers. In the ‘50s, the senior team was first called the Monarchs but they later became the Dynamiters. One diminutive player who was captain of the Monarchs, Martin Aura, was given a tryout with the Penticton Vees. One of the Warwick brothers handed him a Russian leather helmet and said, “Hey kid, you’ll need this.” Why do Paul, Steve and Martin Kariya, Dusty Imoo, Dustin Byfuglien, Jim Harrison, Grant Rezansoff and, as mentioned, Eugene Peacosh all have a Greenwood connection? Visit the Greenwood Museum in May and view the Greenwood Hockey History display for all the answers! A mannequin will be outfitted with the old team jersey and equipment. Greenwood Museum is located on 214 Copper Street and the phone number is 1-250-445-6355.

The latter is the main reason why was invited to participate; he is the ultimate team player, and extremely well-organized.” Rather than pay royalties for wellknown music to create a score for the film, the team decided to highlight and honour local songwriters and artists. Well-known audio technician and recording engineer Zak EburneStoodley has generously agreed to take responsibility for producing the soundtrack. Composers in all genres of music are invited to submit any existing CDs, or perform their best work at an open audition. “We need a completed soundtrack before we go into post-production. You may have noticed that music and editing are synchronized in well-produced movies. Selected works will not only be featured in the film, but to help fund production costs, we will also produce a CD that hopefully will be sold throughout the Boundary,” EburneStoodley added. “For more information and to set up an audition, local artists, groups and even chorales can contact me at 250-442-3854, or email

zakeburne@gmail.com.” This independent production will likely have 50 or more people involved. There are many tasks in all aspects of film production. It will be an exciting project to join, and when it is completed, it will have created an inventory of local talent, skills and community support for other film or video making ventures in the future, whether indigenous or from out of town. Gary Smith, a local performer and graduate of the Vancouver Film School, joined the team as assistant director. He will work with both the director and technical director. His participation gives the group over 130 years of combined experience. The film will require performers of all ages from 16 years old and up. There are about 25 speaking roles, as well as many extra parts, and so there are opportunities to gain on-screen experience. All roles and support positions are unpaid. A casting call has been set for April 6 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. People interested in auditioning can call Ted Invictus at 250-442-8686, or email him at ted.invictus@gmail.com.

River Valley Community Church to host Easter egg hunt Saturday

Dr. Jim Henniger October 20, 1928 – March 25, 2013 We are sad to announce the death of Dr. Jim Henniger on Monday, March 25 in the Moog Hospice Center in Penticton, B.C., after a short illness. Jim was born and grew up in Grand Forks, attended medical school at UBC, then returned to his home town to practice here for over seven years. He and his wife Marion and children then moved to Penticton where he was an outstanding obstetrician until his retirement. Funeral Services to celebrate Jim’s life of service will be held at the Penticton United Church this Saturday, March 30 at 2 p.m., with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Jim’s memory are asked to make a contribution to the Penticton Hospital Foundation. A full obituary of Jim’s life will follow next week.

While chocolate eggs and bunnies have been in stores for a few weeks, children in Grand Forks will have more reason to get into the Easter mood this Saturday. Grand Forks’ River Valley Community Church will be hosting the Community Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday at City Park at 10 a.m., complete with a variety of free activities for young ones. “There will be games, puppet shows, activities and a petting zoo for children 12 years and under,” said Rachel Warriner, head of the church’s children’s ministries. “We really believe that kids are valuable and we just want to love

on kids and their families and provide something for kids to do that day, where they can come and have fun.” After people register, there will be a puppet show and then the children will be split into age groups to begin to hunt for the candy eggs, which will be placed inside plastic eggs. “Five years and under will go to one section and six to 12 will go to a different section where they’ll be able to find the Easter eggs,” Warriner explained, adding that people can leave after the hunt but they can also stay to enjoy the other activities – lawn bowling, face painting, fishing, along with the petting zoo. The fact that Saturday is the day before Easter Sunday adds to the timeliness of the egg hunt.

“We believe Easter is a very important time of the year for us because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; it’s a huge time in Christian history to celebrate and it’s something we celebrate yearly so this is just another way for us to not only celebrate as a family but involve the community in that celebration because a lot of people like chocolate and kids love to search for things,” explained husband and senior pastor Gabe Warriner. “Many of the families in our church have Easter egg hunts, so it’s just a great way to involve the community in the celebration,” he said. There will be an egg hunt as well at Christina Lake on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre.

Retailers need new PST numbers

With only a few days left before the return of the Provincial Sales Tax (PST), retailers that have not yet registered for the PST Ministry of are being reminded Finance they need to have a new PST account number in order to make retail sales and leases and to purchase inventory tax exempt starting April 1. A retailer of PST taxable goods or services is required to register under the PST Act. Those wishing to make a taxable sale or lease on April 1 must be registered to levy and collect the tax on transactions. Registration is fast and easy online at: www.gov.bc.ca/ pst. Over 63,000 businesses have already registered. Businesses will not be able to purchase goods from their supplier tax exempt without providing a PST number or completing a certificate of exemption. These items include: • Goods purchased solely for resale or lease • Software or telecommunication services purchased solely for resale • Goods or software purchased to be incorporated into goods for resale Suppliers must show the PST registration number on the invoice or sales document, or maintain a properly completed certificate of exemption, to support their non collection of the tax. Otherwise, they are required to charge the tax on the sale, and purchasers will have to apply for a refund of the tax after the item is sold at retail. A wide range of tools and services are available to help

The Boundary Museum has been fortunate in obtaining an original McLaughlin sleigh – or cutter as it was also known. Merv Hartman of Greenwood was quite impressed with the job the Boundary Woodworker’s Guild did on the restoration of the Bossburg-Grand Forks stagecoach and wondered if it would be interested in restoring this wonderful piece of history. Fortunately all the metal bits were present, even the brass label proclaiming it to be a McLaughlin. The thin wood, which made up the curved shell of the sleigh, was not salvageable as well as most of the frame; however, the curved hardwood supports have fared much better and can be restored. The museum has taken delivery of the sleigh and it is presently at the workshop on Donaldson Drive, where David Bevan of the guild is spearheading the reconstruction of the frame. This project can be viewed by the

It is estimated that this project will be complete in a month or less. More information on this project will be put up on the Boundary Museum website as well as before, during and after pictures. The Boundary Museum is grateful to

Hartman for his generous donation and to all the volunteers who make these projects possible. If you would like to leave a donation for this or any other restoration project in memory of a loved one, please contact the Boundary Museum. The Boundary Museum is holding its annual general meeting on April 27 and the sleigh will also be on display at that time.

did my heart good. It was a long fight for Mr. Lincoln and it was good to see him triumphant. The Oscars took place recently and I watched with anticipation to see how this fine film, depicting a hero did – it took awards for Best Production Design and Best Actor (Lewis). I know that we need good leaders in government, people that we really can look up to and admire. Well, Mr. Lincoln was most certainly that. The movie has now left the town but if you can find a copy anywhere, take the time to watch it, it is well worth the effort. – Liz Martin is a film critic for the Grand Forks Gazette, a movie lover, cello player and happy retiree.

Magic show

One Book, One Kootenay shortlist announced

They came, they deliberated and they deliberated some more. The panel KOOTENAY LIBRARY of learned FEDERATION librarians tasked with choosing the 2013 One Book, One Kootenay (OBOK) shortlist had a tough time, considering the wealth of talent throughout the Kootenays. But choose they did and the Kootenay Library Federation (KLF), host of the annual OBOK reader’s choice celebration, is ready to announce the selected books. On this year’s shortlist are Confined Space by Deryn Collier, The Dolphin’s Tooth: a Decade in Search of Adventure by Bruce Kirkby and Never Going Back by Antonia Banyard. “It’s a great shortlist,” says KLF director Joanne Richards. “As always, I feel incredibly proud of the level of literary talent we enjoy in our region.” Confined Space introduces small-town coroner Bern Fortin, as he investigates a murder in a brewery. Author Deryn Collier grew up in Montreal and lived in Creston, where she worked for a time at Columbia Brewery before settling in Nelson. Confined Space was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished first crime novel before it was snatched up by Simon & Schuster in 2012. The Dolphin’s Tooth: a Decade in Search of Ad-

venture (McLelland & Stewart) follows Kimberley author Bruce Kirkby through 15 years of high adventure in some of the world’s edgier places. From crocodile attacks while running Africa’s Blue Nile Gorge to rescuing a fallen sherpa on Mount Everest, Kirkby, a Globe and Mail columnist and photographer, has travelled to 80 countries and embraced 18 guiding seasons with an uncommon passion for the wild. Never Going Back (Thistledown Press) brings together a group of high school friends after 10 years of separation as they converge for a friend’s memorial, each of them with their own memories and secrets about a decade-old tragedy and each having found their own ways to cope. Author Antonia Banyard has lived in South Africa, Zambia, Australia and Nelson, where she now lives with her family. The reading public is asked to vote for its favourite shortlisted book between April 15 and Aug. 2. The 2013 selected OBOK author is celebrated in a tour of select Kootenay libraries in the fall. The KLF makes sure that all libraries in the federation have copies of the shortlisted titles, so the reading can begin and feisty conversations ensue. This is the fifth anniversary of OBOK, a regionwide book club supported by public libraries in the East and West Kootenay and the Columbia Basin Trust. The place to find information about the books and interviews with the authors is www.obok.ca as well as upcoming OBOK events at a library near you.

COMMUNITY z FRAUD

Beware of money transfer requests

Money transfer scams are on the rise. Be very careful when someone offers you money to help transfer their funds. Competition Bureau Once you send money Canada to someone, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to get it back. What to look for The Nigerian scam (also called the 419 fraud) has been on the rise since the early-to-mid 1990s in Canada. Although many of these sorts of scams originated in Nigeria, similar scams have been started all over the world (particularly in other parts of West Africa and in Asia). These scams are increasingly referred to as “advance fee fraud.” In the classic Nigerian scam, you receive an email or letter from a scammer asking your help to transfer a large amount of money overseas. You are then offered a share of the money if you agree to give them your bank account details to help with the transfer. They will then ask you to pay all kinds of taxes and fees before you can receive your “reward.” You will never be sent any of the money, and will lose the fees you paid. Then there is the scam email that claims to be from a lawyer or bank representative advising that a long-lost relative of yours has died and left you a huge inheritance. Scammers can tell such genuine-sounding stories that you could be tricked into providing personal documents and bank account details so that you can confirm their identity and claim your inheritance. The “inheritance” is likely to be non-existent and, as well as losing any money you might have paid to the scammer in fees and taxes,

z Gov’t Submission

you could also risk having your identity stolen. If you or your business is selling products or services online, or through newspaper classifieds, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam. In response to your advertisement, you might receive a generous offer from a potential buyer and accept it. You receive a payment by cheque or money order, but the amount you receive is more than the agreed price. The buyer may tell you that the overpayment was simply a mistake or they may invent an excuse, such as extra money to cover delivery charges. If you are asked to refund the excess amount by money transfer, be suspicious. The scammer is hoping you will transfer the refund before you discover that their cheque or money order is counterfeit. You will lose the transferred money, as well as the item if you have already sent it. Protect yourself Remember: If you have been approached by someone

asking you to transfer money for them, it’s probably a scam. Caution: Never send money, or give credit card or online account details to anyone you don’t know or trust. Think: Don’t accept a cheque or money order for payment for goods that is more than what you agreed upon. Send it back and ask the buyer to send you payment for the agreed amount before you deliver the goods or services. Investigate: Examine the information on the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website (www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/english/home.html) for information on how to protect yourself against money transfer scams. Ask yourself: Is it really safe to transfer money for someone I don’t know? Excerpt from The Little Black Book Of Scams: Your Guide to Protection Against Fraud.

Country artist plays at Jogas SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

If you are a music lover, country fan and supported of home grown talent, than you will want to come out and see Lisa Nicole and Jason Thomas perform at Jogas Espresso Café, tonight (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. Lisa is on the road with fellow musician Thomas, promoting her latest EP It Got Ugly. This “country girl” was born in Grand Forks and moved to Castlegar at the age of eight. She said she’s been

singing since the age of nine and ever since she moved to Vancouver, two and a half years ago, she’s gotten a little more notice. Her new hit single, If You Say You Do has been played on country stations across Canada. This will be her third time playing at Jogas. Lisa and Thomas will be playing an acoustic set with some country covers and original songs from her EP and Thomas’s CD Git’R Done. Grand Forks is just one of the many stops this month for Lisa, her It Got Ugly tour is taking her all over B.C. and Alberta.

Peewee rep Bruins finish Tier 4 journey with win

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The Grand Forks peewee rep Bruins hockey team closed off the 2013 Pee Wee Tier 4 B.C. Hockey Championship with a 4-3 win against Juan de Fuca last Thursday. The team came back from a 3-2 deficit, scoring the game winner with 54 seconds remaining in the game – Jacob Vautour scored a pair while Nathan Jourdin and Ryan Steinbach scored the other goals. “We went into this game very confident even though we let a couple of games slip away this week,” explained Grand Forks head coach Darryl Turner. “Even into the last period, they just had a confidence about them. I think what was good was we kept an even keel through the game. They turned it on in the end and scored two late goals to win it - it was a good way to finish the year.” With a 3-2 loss to Kelowna to open the tournament followed by a 3-1 win over Prince George, a 5-4 loss to Windermere Valley, a 4-0 loss to Semiahmoo, a 7-3 loss to Vanderhoof (eventual champion) and the win over Juan

de Fuca, Grand Forks finished the championships with a record of 2-4, good for fifth place. Turner said that the team took too many penalties during the tournament. “We’ve struggled with a couple of projects throughout the year and we’re developing hockey players but we’re also developing people and we have some kids with tempers and some kids with passion and sometimes the passion gets in the way and that’s the learning curve at this age especially too,” Turner said. “We’ve struggled at times this year with penalties and it hurt us this week.” While Vautour had been sick for part of the championship, he said he was feeling good and it showed with his two goals, one of which was the game winner in the Juan de Fuca game. “The last game was nerve-wracking,” Vautour said. “I’d say in the first period when we got a goal, that was really nice but when they were up 3-2 that got me pretty nervous but then we scored one and Dayton (Bryan) did a brave thing and went and crashed the net, so I went and picked up the puck and put it in the net.”

“We really wanted the win. We wanted to be fifth in the province,” said Jourdin, adding that he was feeling confident in the dying seconds of the game, with Juan de Fuca pushing to tie the game. Going in, Turner projected that the team would finish the middle of the pack and with some lucky bounces could have made the final. “In a round robin, the true best team usually comes out on top,” he said. “We beat Prince George, we beat Juan de Fuca. Invermere was a close one. We beat them earlier in the year twice and they got some bounces and we didn’t, so it ended up a 5-4 game and that was a close one. The other three teams are very tough. Kelowna lost 1-0 to Semiahmoo (on March 20) and they came in third. We gave Kelowna everything it could handle in the first game and overall, we’ve met every one of our team goals for the year other than winning a banner.” Read about what the players enjoyed most about the championship in this week’s issue of the West Kootenay Advertiser.

Selkirk announces Digital Technologies z Local

Submission

SELKIRK COLLEGE

Selkirk College has announced that its application for funding to support the Adoption of Digital Technology (ADT) by small and mediumsized enterprises (SMEs) in the Columbia Basin and Boundary region has been approved. The college will receive up to $306,644 in funding through the Digital Technology Adoption Pilot Program (DTAPP) to support ADT activities from January 2013 to February 2014. Delivered by the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program, DTAPP is a component of the Government of Canada’s overall strategy to boost the productivity of SMEs and improve Canada’s digital economy.  The goal of this project is to increase productivity and spur innovation in SMEs as they adopt digital technologies and integrate them into their business models. Targeted businesses are those with fewer than 500 employees that could benefit from productivity improvements through technology adoption but need not be technology businesses themselves. For example, geospatial technologies could be used by businesses to better understand existing or new markets or be used to improve distribution

processes. The Selkirk-SME Adoption of Digital Technologies (ADT) Pilot Project will help accelerate SME adoption of digital technologies through the provision of ADT training for SMEs, advisory services from an Industry Liaison Officer, and direct support in geospatial and digital media ADT from faculty and students. “One of the goals of Selkirk College’s Rural Development Institute (RDI) is to support innovation and knowledge transfer to SMEs. This project represents a significant step forward in advancing this goal. By connecting faculty and student expertise to SME needs, Selkirk College is further increasing our ability to have a direct impact on rural economic development in our region,” states Dr. Terri MacDonald, regional innovation chair in rural economic development for Selkirk College and Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute. Phase One The project will break down into phases; the first will be to gain a better understanding of the needs of SMEs in the region and the capacity of Selkirk College to meet these needs. This phase will include interviews with a minimum of 20 SMEs. The output of this phase will be a regional ADT Needs Assessment Report, including highlighted opportunities for college training and support. Phase Two The second phase will in-

volve the delivery of ADT Training to SMEs. The Selkirk College Community Education and Workplace Training Department (CEWT) will work with the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC) and digital media faculty to develop and host between four to six short courses and/or workshops based on ADT needs as identified in the ADT Needs Assessment of SMEs report. Phase Three Phase three relies heavily on Selkirk’s college industry liaison officer  Carlos Rodriguez and involves the provision of ADT advisory services and direct SME support through pilot projects. The liaison officer will draw on referrals and implement a minimum of 10 ADT SME-College pilot projects. These projects will include direct ADT support from SGRC and Digital Media faculty in an effort to help accelerate the adoption of GIS and digital media technologies. It is anticipated that GIS and digital media students will also support these pilot projects through course projects and co-op placements. “The SGRC team is looking forward to the challenge of working with local business to find ways to increase productivity using leading-edge digital mapping technology,” states SGRC co-ordinator Ian Parfitt. The project expects to provide a minimum of 50 SMEs with training, advisory services, and direct ADT support.

SAFETY

Build in Tulip Time!

z SKIING

Skiers urged to ride safe during spring z Gov’t Submission Ministry of Justice and Canadian Avalanche Centre

As students and families head for the ski slopes this spring break, the Ministry of Justice and the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) want to remind skiers and boarders to respect the ski area boundaries and closure signs. Often referred to as “slackcountry,” slang for terrain outside of ski boundaries that is accessible by chairlift, these areas can pose the same risk and deserve the same respect from skiers and boarders as the backcountry. It is important that those who venture out-of-bounds take all the necessary precautions and that all recreation enthusiasts who choose to do so recognize they are taking some measure of personal risk. “It should not be called slackcountry. It is backcountry and it can be dangerous. This spring break, we are urging skiers and snow boarders not to go out of bounds – it can be incredibly hazardous and it is simply not worth the risk,” explained Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond. “I also want to encourage ev-

eryone to make sure that they are aware of the dangers that come with ducking the rope. This is especially important for parents to discuss with their children.” “Crossing a boundary rope is a big decision. Once you’re outside the ski area boundaries you’re in the backcountry and you need to be able to take care of yourself and your partners,” explained Karl Klassen, acting executive director for the Canadian Avalanche Centre. “That means avalanche rescue equipment, first-aid supplies and awareness of the risk you’re taking.” Quick Facts • No one should be entering areas marked “closed,” whether for avalanche danger or any other hazard. If you do so, you run the risk of having your lift pass revoked and even being fined. Most importantly, you are endangering yourself and others. • If you are thinking of going out of bounds, check in with the resort for the best point of access to the backcountry. • Everyone in a backcountry party needs to be equipped with a shovel, probe and transceiver. More information on safety equipment is available at www.youtube.com/user/ emergencyinfobc. • The CAC strongly recommends all backcountry users take an avalanche awareness

course. A list of instructors and courses can be found at www. avalanche.ca/training. • Snowpack stability changes constantly throughout the winter. Backcountry users need to check the avalanche bulletin regularly to keep informed of conditions in their area. Get the most recent bulletin and weather forecasts at www.avalanche. ca/cac/bulletins/latest. • Planning ahead is a must – before you head outdoors be sure to leave a trip plan with someone and stick to that plan. For a printable copy of a trip plan, visit www.adventuresmart.ca/trip_safety/planning.htm. Learn More • Audio and video clips from the Canadian Avalanche Centre and the Ministry of Justice are available through SendtoNews at www.sendtonews. com?SK=4XvZW8dnwm. • More detailed information is also available on the CAC forecaster’s blog. For the bulletins, blog and information on training, check www.avalanche.ca/cac. • For tips on how to stay safe, follow Emergency Management BC on Twitter at @ EmergencyPrepBC and the CAC at @avalancheca. • For backcountry essentials and avalanche awareness information, go to www.adventuresmart.ca/snow/avalanche. htm.

Polly Chutskoff Polly Chutskoff was born April 13, 1925 in Grand Forks, BC to parents Sergei and Nastia Esouloff. Polly was the second youngest in a family of five children: Pete, Annie, Jane, Polly and Molly. During her childhood, her family lived in various locations in the Grand Forks area and made a living by farming and growing vegetables, not only for their own use, but also for sale. Due to family responsibilities and having had rheumatic fever at the age of 14, she was able to only partially complete grade seven in school. At seventeen Polly started working in the Okanagan picking fruit. This continued off and on for about seven years. During her earlier Okanagan years, she took a correspondence nursing course. Although she did receive a diploma she didn’t get a chance to pursue this career. At the age of 21 Polly met her future husband William Chutskoff, and after courting for three years, they married in 1949. They were blessed with three children: Barbara, Howard and Cynthia. Polly, together with Bill, raised their children on their farm on Carson Road in Grand Forks. Being life long members of the USCC organization, it was important for both Bill and Polly to raise their children in the Doukhobor faith and instil the values of prayer, pacifism, vegetarianism and living a non-materialistic life. Over the years they proudly supported their children’s spiritual and cultural Doukhobor activities, attending many youth festivals and choral concerts. Polly was always ready to make her voluntary contributions to the community by participating in the ladies cooking groups and helping with the upkeep of the Community Centre, among other things. For many years Polly was an avid participant in the Grand Forks Fall Fair where she displayed her cooking, baking, canning and crafts. She received first place recognition enough times to win the coveted Grand Aggregate prize for four years. Later, she became involved in the local Farmer’s Market selling her bread, pies, borscht and pyrahi. Living a frugal and nonextravagant lifestyle allowed Bill and Polly to not only provide for their family, but to travel and see much of the world, a passion they both shared. When the family was young the summer always included a road trip driving through various parts of Canada and the US, seeing the interesting sights and making many wonderful family memories. After her children were on their own, Polly continued her travelling adventures with Bill as long as their health allowed. They travelled by truck and camper, planes, cars, buses and ships, visiting many different states and countries such as Alaska, Hawaii, Russia, China, Europe, the Caribbean, Bahamas, Cuba and Tahiti. As Bill’s health began to decline, Polly took care of him in their family home until his eventual hospitalization in July of 2005. She remained living there for several years after Bill’s passing in 2006. In December of 2011 Polly relocated to White Rock to be closer to her son and his family, where she lived independently in her small and cozy apartment. There she suffered a heart attack and was recuperating at Peace Arch Hospital. Sadly, on March 15, 2013 she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Polly was predeceased by her mother in 1958, father in 1978, sister Helen in infancy, brother Pete in 1982, sisters Annie in 1987, Jane in 2008 and Molly in 2011, daughter Cynthia Meehan in 1999, husband Bill in 2006 and daughter Barbara in 2011. Polly leaves to mourn her, her loving family: son Howard and his wife Lorraine of Surrey; son-in-law Neil Meehan of Calgary; grandchildren Misha Chutskoff of Vancouver, Andrei and Matvei Chutskoff of Surrey, Kristina Meehan-Prins and her husband, Allan of Calgary, and Joe and Nick Meehan of Calgary; and great-grandson Emmit Prins, also of Calgary. Polly will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew her. May God accept her into His Heavenly Kingdom and may she rest in peace. A traditional Doukhobor funeral was held on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at the USCC Community Center in Grand Forks. Burial followed at the Sion Doukhobor Cemetery. The family is deeply appreciative of all those who expressed their sympathies and those who attended the service. We are also grateful to J.J. Verigin for his kind words, Peter Rezansoff for his help and guidance with the service, Jerry Seminoff for translating the biography into Russian, the singers, the ladies who served such a delicious meal, the men who prepared Polly’s final resting place, and Everett Baker and his staff of the Grand Forks Funeral Home for their professional service and guidance.
